As a public official driven by principle, Democrat Toby Ann Stavisky knows it's time that we make Albany accountable to the people. That's why she's fighting in the Legislature to increase the level of transparency in government and start making Albany work for New Yorkers again.
With the help of her colleagues in the State Senate, Senator Stavisky implemented the "Sunshine Policy;" and ethics reform bill which is designed to provide the public with greater access to information about State government as well as easier access to programs, processes and overall governmental activity.
Fed up with the big money influences in government, Senator Stavisky has strongly supported strict campaign finance reform measures that will help clean up Albany and put an end to the pay-to-play status quo.
Senator Stavisky is also working with her colleagues in the Senate to develop a nonpartisan redistricting commission. The establishment of such an independent entity will help take the politics out of drawing district lines, and has been recommended by good government groups and The New York Times.
Senator Toby Ann Stavisky has been called "a model for independent leadership in the New York State Senate" and she will continue to build upon her reputation as one of the most honest and upfront public officials in New York.
